I am 19 years of age and I am a second year student of the University of the West Indies Mona Campus. I am currently pursuing a double major in Pure Chemistry and Biochemistry. I am very passionate about research and as such my career path will be one of that nature. I would like to generate a sense of enthusiasm for chemistry itself in the youths especially those who taking this pathway towards the future.

My vision for IYC 2011 is to see many forums, conferences and other avenues to bring across, especially in the third world countries the message of the importance of chemistry's advancements which is paving the way for a more sustainable life, which I desire greatly to be apart of.

I am apart of an Organization at the University of The West Indies Mona Campus (Jamaica). The Chemical Society which have been generating an interest in learning about the advancements in chemistry and my hope is that other societies affiliated with Chemistry is doing just that and I would hope that this is on the agenda for this year for the IYC, i.e. to ensure the message of Chemistry is being brought across in world.
